New Year, Same Natural Hair Updo

Hello, I  haven’t blogged for a while. This is mainly because I’ve been wearing my signature style, sometimes with heat, and sometimes without. Also I got a bit lazy and, dare I say it, a little bored with my hair. This laziness led to dry split ends, so I had to trim about 1 inch… Continue reading New Year, Same Natural Hair Updo

Curlformed Updo

Gosh, it’s been a while since I’ve posted on my blog. The main reason for this is that I’ve been either blow-drying or curlforming my hair, and my main styles have been two jumbo twists and stretched up-dos so not much variety going on. I have discovered some new products which I will be reviewing… Continue reading Curlformed Updo

12 Months of Protective Styles on Natural Hair

I’ve been blogging since November 2012 so to mark this milestone I created this gallery of my favourite styles from the past year 🙂 As you may have observed I’m a big fan of flat-twists and up-dos. This is because they ‘tame’ my locks,  look stylish and do not require the use of heat and… Continue reading 12 Months of Protective Styles on Natural Hair

As  I’ve written about Curlformers before I won’t waffle on about the process. Instead I will illustrate what I did with pictures. As you… Continue reading Curlformers Curls on Natural Hair

French Roll on Natural Hair

The flat twists were fun but they were not really ‘professional-looking’, which is why I created this French Roll. A sort of French Roll anyway. As my hair is short it’s more of a tuck and roll updo. It turned out ok but next time I’ll twist my hair over night so that I’ll have… Continue reading French Roll on Natural Hair

Casual Weekend Jumbo Twists

This was meant to be two jumbo flat twists, but my hair wasn’t  properly stretched  and therefore I couldn’t ‘catch’ it very well. So I grabbed my rat tail comb and started to make swirly partings. I don’t like plating my hair straight down as it doesn’t suit my long face. Swirly larger partings add… Continue reading Casual Weekend Jumbo Twists

Hair Comb Bun Up-do

My hair had been protected in finger coils for a few weeks so I decided to set it free. After washing and deep-conditioning I put it in two stand twists over night to allow for some stretch. I  used two medium sized hair combs on either side then loosely flat-twisted and tucked in my loose… Continue reading Hair Comb Bun Up-do
